Ramón Aragonés - Nouveau DG - NH Hotel Group

NH Hotel Group has appointed a new CEO, Ramón Aragonés. Currently the Executive Managing Director of Business & Operations, he will formerly become the CEO during the next Board meeting. A look at his experience and the Group's recent transformations.

Ramón Aragonés, who will be taking up the reins at NH Hotels Group, has spent his entire career in the hotel industry. Before joining the group he worked as General Manager and Director of Operations for the hotel chain Hesperia, after ten years as a hotel Spain, in Belgium and Venezuela, as well as Commercial Director at Stab Hotel. Over the last eight years at NH Hotel Group he has held the positions of Executive Director of Business and Operations, Managing Director of Operations and Director of Operations for the Spain, Portugal and Andorra Business Unit.

In addition to overseeing operations of the company's nearly 400 hotels, he carried out the portfolio repositioning plan, implemented the new sales and revenue management strategy, and, among other things, pursued the expansion strategy in Europe and the Americas.

During the same meeting, Juan José Andrés Alvez was also appointed new independent director of the Board of administration of NH Hotel Group. The Spanish champion led a revolution in which the shareholdes formed an anti-HNA coalition against the 30% shareholder, the Chinese group HNA, a global conglomerate, which owns many equity shares in hotel groups, including Carlson Rezidor since early 2016.

This has not prevented NH Hotels Groupe from achieving good financial results, and pursuing growth through many developments and renovation programs underway,particularly under its upscale brand NH Collection in Germany, Barcelona & Madrid and in 2018 in Toulouse-Blagnac, but also with the takeover of the Colombian group Hoteles Royal in 2015.

With the appointment of Ramón Aragonés to the position of CEO, NH Hotels Group plans to continue to grow and consolidate its project to transform the group.
